Attorney Tony Lord left his hometown and the bitter memories of his girlfriend's murder behind. Now, twenty-eight years later, he's pulled back to Lake City to defend his closest high school friend against a charge of homicide.

Sam Robb, the married father of two, is a local football legend. But he was also the last to see sixteen-year-old Marcie Calder alive, and as shocking forensic evidence at the trial reveals, he is the father of her unborn child.

Probing the darkest recesses of love and friendship, Lord will discover things too disturbing to ignore--that Sam wasn't the only one in Lake City with a motive for killing Marcie, that small-town secrets can hide devastating betrayals, and that the past has a way of repeating itself . . . even in murder.

Silent Witness, is a story of rivalry, friendship, and loss, and how the tragedies of youth can change the course of our adulthood.
It begins in 1967, in a small Midwestern town scarcely touched by the tumults of the decade. Seventeen-year-old Tony Lord, Lake City's star athlete, seems destined for great things. His driving ambition to move far beyond the narrow world of his parents and his hometown is precisely what attracts Alison Taylor, the beautiful and enigmatic daughter of the town's leading family, and it is what sets Tony apart from his two closest friends: Sam Robb - mercurial and charismatic, his only rival for athletic honors - and Sam's girl, Sue Cash, whose affection for Tony may mask something more.

Patterson's artful writing transports you to the scenes.- Intriguing characters - just enough that Patterson can develop them into interesting people- and not so many to confound you - the courtroom drama is the best part of the book -strategic and thriling
